New Configuration Signifies I-4 Ultimate Project Milestone
The westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) travel lanes between Maitland Boulevard (State Road 414) and Lee Road (State Road 423) are shifting to the permanent configuration as soon as 5 a.m. on Sunday, March 17.
This shift marks the first instance where both the westbound and eastbound I-4 lanes are in the final configuration at the same location.
To accommodate the shift, the span of westbound I-4 between Maitland Boulevard and Lee Road is closing at 12 a.m. on March 17 and reopening in the new alignment by 5 a.m. Traffic will be diverted onto Maitland Boulevard and follow a detour route to re-enter I-4 from Lee Road. In addition, the westbound I-4 on-ramp from Maitland Boulevard and the westbound I-4 exit ramp to Lee Road are closing from 9 p.m. on March 16 until 5 a.m. the following morning. Motorists should also expect nighttime lane closures on westbound I-4 beginning as soon as 9 p.m. on March 16.
